Sello: UMLE - Latino
Grab your abuela, a box of tissues, and your disco-dancing shoes! Alejandro Fernández, the prince of romantic pop, has put together a genre-jumping, time-traveling, generation-bridging new album that's got a little something for everyone. Yes, there are plenty of tear-soaked strings and candlelit whispers. But there's also a slice of funk-edged, morning-after disco ("¿Porqué Te Vas?"); some Harry Connick-worthy big band crooning ("Concavo y Convexo"); and "Desahogo," which has got to be angling for a Bond soundtrack spot. Oh yeah: and one pretty killer, blues-soaked duet with, um, Rod Stewart.
